Georgia Tech place kicker Harrison Butker has accepted an invitation to participate in the 2017 National Football League Scouting Combine from Feb. 28-March 2 in Indianapolis. In addition to his achievements on the field, Butker holds a 3.20 cumulative grade point average as an industrial engineering major. He is a member of Georgia Tech’s Dean’s List and was the Yellow Jackets’ recipient of the TaxSlayer Bowl Scholar-Athlete award.

The NFL Combine gives executives, coaching staffs, player-personnel departments and medical personnel from all 32 NFL teams the opportunity to evaluate the nation’s top draft-eligible college football players in advance of the upcoming NFL Draft. Of the 332 prospects invited to last year’s NFL Combine, only six were place kickers.

Butker, Georgia Tech’s place kicker for each of the past four seasons (2013-16), closed his collegiate career as the Yellow Jackets’ all-time leading scorer with 337 career points. In addition to being Tech’s all-time leading scorer, Butker also holds the school record for career PATs (208) and ranks third in school history in career field-goal percentage (.717) and fifth in career field goals (43).
